KRISTOPHER IRMITER

Bass-Baritone

Critical Acclaim

“Bass-Baritone Kristopher Irmiter as John Proctor gave a towering performance of burnished singing, compelling acting  and instinctive movement”


                     -Salt Lake Tribune

“Kristopher Irmiter in the role of Scarpia delivered a darkly compelling performance that conveyed an emotional intensity upon the entire production. What he had to offer dramatically made him the most generous actor in the cast. His air was dark, lean, lascivious, and elegant. There was nothing flat about this villain. He was a multi-dimensional, highly convincing predator.

                              - Boston Musical Intelligencer

“Bass-baritone Kristopher Irmiter created Don Pasquale with every gesture he made and note he sang. His timing was impeccable, and as any great basso buffo does, he focused his considerable vocal ability on the integrity of the text.”

         - Miami Herald

“As the evangelist Blitch, American bass-baritone Kristopher Irmiter easily matched Dibblee’s passionate delivery.  Apart from the sheer opulence and clarity of his voice, Irmiter brought an unusual depth and empathy to this role.”

                             - The Record

Mr. Irmiter is accepting new private voice students for in person and online instruction.  Building on success with several universities and Young Artist Programs, he is also available for masterclass teaching engagements.  Recently launched is Encore Creative - a woodworking business of hand-crafted gifts, decorative items, and custom works.
